Space Breakers: Fight Interstellar UFO Starship Invaders! by MakeGamesWithUs.com ($0.99, 17.7 MB): Enjoy a nostalgic, challenging, and addictive brick-breaking experience in this clever combination of Space Invaders and Breakout. Rather than bust of stationary blocks, your mission is to destroy incoming UFOs by deflecting some of their own arsenal back at them, specifically, the green balls. Unfortunately, the rest of the alien’s weaponry will cause damage to your defensive device, therefore, such objects must be avoided while making your offensive maneuvers. In addition, special weapons will glide into range, such as a laser cannon power-up, providing a much more potent wallop. The game features retro arcade-style graphics and sounds, tilt control, global leaderboard, as well as 24 level campaign with boss battles and endless play modes.
